  • 24 raw yabby tails, peeled
  • ½ block butter (125g)
  • 1 clove garlic
  • 1 tablespoon finely chopped onion or shallots
  • 1 tablespoon mixed dried herbs
  • 200mL thickened cream (optional)
  • Salt and pepper



  1. Remove the tails, discarding the heads/thorax.
    Peel off the shells to leave just the tail meat. Set aside.
  2. In a large pan over gas flame or coals, melt the butter and sauté the onion and garlic until soft and golden. Stir in the herbs and season with salt and pepper.
  3. At this point, you can also add the cream if you prefer a creamy sauce.
  4. Add the yabby tails and cook until the tails go a darker pink/red in colour and become coated with the sauce.
  5. Serve as an entrée with a toothpick in each tail, or serve on a bed of rice with the sauce poured over.
